  • Maine

    People sometimes ask me why I like mammal watching. While most seem to understand the thrill of seeing a wild elephant or a tiger, there seems less conviction in their nods when I try to capture the excitement of finding a rare species of rat in the trap, or the thrill of crawling through a culvert to look at a bat. Funny that. So when I sense my audience is unconvinced I change tack to explain that mammal watching takes me to some fabulous places and, increasingly I realise, introduces me to some great people...

  • Massachusetts

    Cynde’s been on about 2000 trips over 20 years and has seen Sei Whales just 10 – 15 times, and seen them skim feeding only once. Northern Right Whales, while regular during the start of the season until mid May - when they head up to the Bay of Fundy – are more common. But she’d never seen them skim feeding.

  • Montana

    Montana is perhaps my favourite state in the lower 48, though I've hardly spent any time there. In 2010 I stayed in Gardiner Montana for just a night during a trip to Yellowstone (see the Wyoming page for details of Yellowstone NP). In 2014 I returned for 3 nights for a trip to Glacier National Park and then south to Billings.

  • Nevada

    In August 2010 I visited the Spring Mountains (about an hour from Vegas) for a night on the advice of John Fox to look for Palmer's and Panamint Chipmunks. John's advice was perfect and Matt Miller and I found both species within a few minutes of looking in the early morning.

  • New Hampshire

    I visited the Esther Currier Wildlife Management Area, near New London, in December 2013, after reading Vladimir's report. I wasn't as lucky as he was, though it was well below freezing, there was snow on the ground and freezing drizzle which didn't help I am sure. I tried though, but during four hours in the afternoon and after dark I didn't see any mammals.

  • New Mexico

    New Mexico is beautiful, no doubt about it. The state has a stack of diverse wilderness, lots of wildlife and simply looking at some of the mountain forest makes you feel healthier.

  • New York

    I've been living in New York City since February 2012. I love the city but not for its mammal watching. That said, there are Grey Squirrels in Central Park and if you want to risk the place at night then Skunks, Opossums and Raccoons are reputedly common. In fact I saw a Raccoon at 6 p.m. in May 2011. But you could also drink Margaritas and eat in any of 10,000 restaurants so why bother?
